Tasted and reviewed on the BA release 09/24/11 in the tap room.
This brew poured black with a tan head which disappeared almost as fast as the whisky aged bottles.
Nose has a lot of big chocolate aromas there is a nice woody presents with hints of dark malts and coffee.
Taste follows the nose, lots of chocolate with sweet roasted malt, oak flavors, and a bit of coffee bitterness in the finish.
Mouth feel is silky smooth, nice big round body, slightly bitter finish that ends in a nice warming of the throat.
I wish I had been able to get a growler of this, I look forward to tasting my bourbon BA bottle I did manage to grab.

Had this one on tap in CCB's tasting room at the Hunahpu release event on Sept. 24 2011. Served on a snifter.

A: jet oil black with a dark brown head that was less than a finger but remained there for quite a while. Literally no lacing present.

S: strong wood and oak smell coupled with roasted malts and slight hints of coffee, dark chocolate and dark fruits.

T: heavy roasted malty flavor with notes of dark chocolate, woody flavors and coffee. Mild spiciness in the middle and a good disguising of the alcohol kick.

M: smooth and sticky; this is a full bodied stout. Light to medium carbonation.

O: a very good imperial stout that shines for its well implemented complexity.
